A fantastic rookie era photograph featuring 20-year-old Babe Ruth, this image has been cropped from a famous shot of five pitchers from the 1915 Boston Red Sox staff, including Rube Foster, Carl Mays, Ernie Shore, Babe Ruth, and Dutch Leonard. Research reveals the image to have been shot at Polo Grounds on the final day of the regular season – October 7, 1915. Though it remains a vintage example contemporary to when the original was created, this iteration hails from a duplicate negative typically produced by taking a photograph of a photograph, landing it as a Type 3 photo according to PSA's authentication scale. Measures 3.25" x 7.5". Encapsulated as a Type 3 photo by PSA/DNA.
